Take a break from holiday music

Needless to say I have been a major slacker at updating this blog. Nevertheless, I have a new favorite song I want everyone to put on their latest Spotify Playlist or what have you. It's called "No Sleep No Dream" by seventeen year old Arizona native, Zella Day.

Zella Day's voice sounds very soft and innocent in the song; however, the instruments keep it upbeat, making me want to listen to it over and over again. She's a singer/songwriter, reminding me of an artist like Sarah Jaffe, whom you should also check out if you haven't already!

Another song of Zella Day's to check out is her version of The White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army". Rather than the fun rock version I am accustomed to, Zella Day gives the song a touch of folk rock with an acoustic guitar. Check out her official video here or watch below!

One more thing, while writing this entry, I learned that you can purchase Zella Day's EP "Cynics vs. Dreamers" on iTunes. Enjoy!
